Meet Sylvia: “I’m a retiree, having worked as an investigator for the State of California for 20+ years.  I have lived in Long Beach for 24 years with the last 7 years in the unique and welcoming neighborhood of Rose Park.  My husband and I are active members of Rose Park Neighborhood Association since we moved into the area. I enjoy spending time outdoors, spending time with my close friends and family, meeting new people, trying new restaurants (and going back to my favorites), cooking, attending museums, concerts, musicals, traveling, going to the movies (The Art Theatre is my favorite), and indulging in a breathtaking red wine, martini and margarita (not together).  In my spare time, I volunteer at a number of local nonprofit organizations, advocate for seniors, and my husband and I routinely do a neighborhood cleanup in our area. I am passionate about advocating for my neighborhood and for vulnerable and underserved children and seniors, and promoting a greater sense of community within my neighborhood.”
